Summer Reading

School isn't even out yet, but the summer reading list has arrived for the Berkeley Heights public schools. Here are some I enjoyed/would like to read:

Funny in Farsi by Firzoozeh Dumas
Elsewhere by Gabrielle Zevin
13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson
Into Thin Air by Jon Krakauer
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon

Some GL students will be lucky enough to continue to get these assignments right up through college (but by then they are called "common reading programs"). If you'd like to find your alma mater's summer read on a more comprehensive list, click here.

Appalachian State & Ohio State: Three Cups of Tea - Greg Mortenson and David Oliver Relin
Duke: The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao - Junot Diaz
Texas Tech: The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian - Sherman Alexie
University of North Carolina: A Home on the Field - Paul Cuadros
University of Washington: Dreams From My Father - Barack Obama
